In other words, have all you RINO hunters learned your lesson yet?

With all due respect, would you support another run by John McCain or Mitt Romney. We can't afford another RINO.

I didn't support John McCain during the primary season in 2008. In my view, the reason he became the nominee is because conservatives could not unite behind any of the other candidates. But that is water under the bridge, and McCain will never run again. So throwing him into the mix in these discussions is just using a straw man argument.

As for Romney, I know it's heresy here on FR, but you damned well better believe I'd rather have him as president than Obama. I don't support Romney now. Don't support anyone now. It's too early, and all of our choices have yet to emerge. But when the time comes, we conservatives MUST choose wisely and rally behind whoever emerges as the strongest candidate. If we fracture into disgruntled tea parties, folks who hunt "RINOs" above all other considerations, and so on, then Obama will win a second term. Period. That's the stark truth.

I do believe Obama wants to do as much damage to this country as possible while he's in power. I also believe there's a cadre of people on the Right who want to actually assist him in doing his worst, just so they can stand around tut-tutting that it's all the fault of those dastardly "RINOs." Nothing makes the self-righteous purist feel better than to help make the result they've been warning about become reality. They get to say they were right, and get to blame everyone else but themselves for the outcome. Win-win in their minds.
